Introduction to Optics - 3rd edition

Introduction to Optics (ISBN10: 0131499335; ISBN13: 9780131499331)
ISBN13: 978-0131499331
ISBN10: 0131499335

Summary: The text is a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to optics suitable for one- or two-term intermediate and upper level undergraduate physics and engineering students.

The reorganized table of contents provides instructors the flexibility to tailor the chapters to meet their individual needs.

Features
  • Organization/Reorganization-Section I contains chapters from which a s
    tandard one-semester optics course could be based. Chapters in Section I would require that some but not all of the preceding Section I chapters be covered first. Section II contains chapters that, upon completion of a subset of Section I chapters, could be covered in any order. This would allow teachers to select, as they wish, specialized content to suit individual curricular needs and goals.
  • New Problems- The third edition contains over 50 new Problems. Figures accompany end-of-chapter Problems to help students visualize the situation.
  • Improved Art Program- The third edition includes over 50 new and revised figures. Electronic versions of most figures will be available to instructors for presentation.
  • Chapter 6, Laser Basics--Formerly introduced in Chapter 21, lasers are now introduced early which establishes the importance of the laser as an optical instrument; allows for early introduction of various applications, demonstrations, and discussions that build on the use of a laser. Chapter 6 includes updates to semiconductor lasers, introduction of fiber lasers, and addition of more solid state lasers.
  • Thoroughly Updated-In addition to Chapter 6 on Laser Basics, chapters on Optical Interferometery (9), Fiber Optics (10), and Holography (15) have been updated. Updates include a modernization of the treatment and the addition of modern applications.
  • New Applications- Modern applications have been added to make the material relevant and interesting. Applications include: Liquid Crystal Displays, CCD's, CD and DVD Technology, Optical Parametric Oscillators and Amplifiers as Tunable Sources of Radiation, Near Field Microscopy, Ultra Short Pulses, Manipulation of Atoms with Lasers (Optical Tweezers, Optical Cooling and Trapping), selected applications in Nanophotonics and Biophotonics, more extensive treatment of communication systems using optical fibers, and Wavelength Division Multiplexing.
